This will be the third time that the Women’s Association of Venture and Equity (WAVE) has hosted the event and we expect 400+ attendees (approximately half candidates, half industry professionals).

The event will begin at 7:00 am and last until 2:30 pm and the format will consist of panels, roundtables, and an Expo where students can speak with companies currently looking to hire. Companies in attendance are expected to include private equity and venture capital firms, hedge funds, limited partners, investment banks, placement agents, and other firms within the alternatives industry.

Candidates can apply via the “Events” section on the WAVE’s website. (The link to this application has been provided when you click "RSVP" for this event on the top right hand corner of the page) Make sure to follow the instructions provided.
